CD is a genetically driven immunological intolerance to dietary gluten. Th e treatment is a gluten-free diet. Th e diagnostic criteria are the ESPGHAN criteria, which include the histological characteristics of villous atrophy, crypt hyperplasia and increased number of intraepithelial lymphocytes (IEL). Th e clinical manifestations in CD range from seve... more
